Question Ordering Bettas From Petco?

Hi! I wasn't quite sure where to start this thread, so I put it here... anyway, my local Petco's Betta selection has degraded over the past 6-8 months or so. I kept checking the store, hoping that they would get plakats, but no dice. I noticed that they now sell a bunch of Betta types online, though. Has anyone ordered a live Betta from them?

I never have, but you have no choice in color so you really never know what you're going to get! It would be a real gamble!

Some have and only had problems. Look on www.aquabid.com if you want something special. Thailand orders are difficult unless you have a transhipper near you like I do.

Agreed. Ordering fish online from Petco has been nothing but trouble, based on some people I've talked to who've done it.

I wouldn't.. I just see that being a mess. If the fish came dead, I think it would be a hassle to get another.
